      In Futurama both of these are true. Also it wasn't a 90s show

      in Futurama there is literally Al Gore, both in current era years and during the 3000s. Voiced by himself

    The Comedy Central run is underrated. Not that it's brilliant, but it's overhated.

    It was reddit before we realized how cringe reddit was. The same losers that defend Futurama are the ones that say "reddit used to be good". When in reality it was always terrible and you just got older and wiser and for some people who got older but never mentally left adolescence it "still holds up" to them.

      Pretty much this,
      >normal words but a robot-guy.
      The only decent episodes are the Star Trek style “go to a planet for delivery and have adventure of the week”.
      And every single “obvious 20th century pop reference but in future dress” is terrible.

        It had a good run, definitely above average but it developed a 'Rick and Morty' type fanbase before R&M, in fact those same people probably just migrated over. It really had potential but largely underperformed.

    how come every simpsons fan I meet in the world is a fairly normal, adjusted person and anyone even mentioning or obsessing over futurama quotes are cringeworthy misfits and neckbeards?

    Plebs who never read a SF book.
    It’s all reworked material better covered elsewhere, but for - well, plebs - it’s the first place they encountered certain ideas.

    Obviously enough I’m not a fan. Has its place but not a highly rated place imo.

    It's kinda not. If you're familiar with science fiction beyond the popular stuff the satire in the first few seasons is quiet good.
    A shame they let it go too long. Just stop watching when you hear Pizzacato Five.

    Because it was actually great. Then it got resurrected and was shitty. But it was just similar enough for desperate nerds to pretend it hadn't changed. So they just act like it's still great.

    They were a pathetic post Good Simpsons show that slipped a few great jokes in between all the stupidity. Fry is too much of a wuss and too stupid. Study early Homer from Simpsons to learn how to do a buffoon right. Kiff is another abortion of a character that just didn't need to be in the show, except the feature of the show is pathetic males. Seriously, if the garden gnomes who designed and wrote for it had not hated white males so much it would have been a much funnier show.

        Seriously though, too much humor based on pathetic males. And shitting all over them all the time at that. It's the classic problem of punching down in your comedy. It just comes off as unnecessarily hostile. It wasn't like Fry would totally screw up and then get hated for making a mistake. It was Fry was just trying to make the best of a bad life and "Ha, ha, ha, ha, now you have your brain slug back on your head, thus you are enslaved to it." For no other reason that to shit all over Fry because he is written as a loser. That's the kind of pure evil that would be appropriate if Fry had tried to genocide some innocent aliens and the crew had to use a brain slug to stop him from being such a prick. But fry is not such a prick. He's no worse than self absorbed. He's down right harmless most of the time. Here's a joke that would be the equivalent amount of evil and off:

        In a deliberate space soap opera parody the super duper evil villain comes on screen to negotiate with the crew of a delivery starship about running weapons and nuclear fuel to some worlds he owns. For the first few minutes he and the captain discuss the routine details of who gets paid how much and what the risk premium should be for such dangerous and valuable cargo. Then remembering it is a comedy the Second Mate chimes in: "Wait, you are the villain of the series. Do something super evil so we can all laugh!" (A normal comedy might have him steal an alcoholic drink from one of the crew members and force another crew member to drink it. A Futurama version would have him pluck a child out of a mother's arms and vaporize it while everyone cackled madly. Then he would say, "Think of it as a 7th trimester abortion." To yet more laughter.)

          Fry is just a catch-all Joe Everyman character. Everyone has some insecurities and everyone gets into stupid situtations sometimes. He's there as a placeholder for the viewer to relate to.
